CSK Legend files criminal case against ex-business partners for cheating of over INR 15 crore
A Chennai Super Kings (CSK) star has initiated legal proceedings against Mihir Diwakar and Soumya Vishwash of Aarka Sports and Management Limited in a Ranchi court. Diwakar is accused of violating the terms of an agreement made with the cricketer in 2017 to establish a global cricket academy. However, Diwakar failed to meet the specified conditions outlined in the agreement. Aarka Sports was supposed to pay a franchise fee and share profits as per the agreement, but these obligations were not fulfilled.
Despite multiple attempts, the agreed-upon terms and conditions were consistently ignored. Consequently, MS Dhoni revoked the authority letter granted to Aarka Sports in August 2021 and issued several legal notices, all of which went unanswered.
Dayanand Singh, representing MS Dhoni through Vidhi Associates, contends that they were deceived and defrauded by Aarka Sports, resulting in a loss exceeding Rs 15 crore.
Dhoni's associate, Simant Lohani, also known as Chittu, has filed a complaint asserting that he faced threats and abuse from Mihir Diwakar after taking legal action against Aarka Sports.
